Key Resources for Online Advertised Job Postings

Here are some of the best Internet job posting and career advice websites. Remember, however, that while the Internet is a useful resource, only a small percentage of people obtain jobs through using Internet job boards. Employers may receive hundreds of responses to a job posting, and the majority of job hunters utilize the Internet as their primary job search tool, so the competition is keen. You do not, therefore, want Internet job boards to be your only job search tool.

A good strategy is to dedicate approximately 30% of your job search time searching and applying for advertised jobs on the Internet, and approximately 70% of your time searching for jobs in the "hidden" job market. Listed below are suggested websites to use in pursuing jobs in the advertised job market:

  • General job sites
  • Federal government job sites
  • Non-profit job sites
  • Christian job sites
  • Elementary / secondary education job sites
  • Sample professional association job boards
  • Over-50 job sites
